Our calendars are filling up for early 2023 as later bookings seem to be more of a trend this year. Our 2023 rates continue to be very competitive and loyalty discounts are offered to our many returning guests.

We offer winter lets in our barn cottages from November but in normal times our 4 star lodge is open all year.
The legal requirements for Covid 19 cleaning protocols have been relaxed along with many such legal restrictions but we are still committed to thorough cleaning, aeration and commonsense precautions for our accommodations as Covid 19 continues to flare up here & there..
We have four Visit England 3 star self-catering barn conversion cottages, and a luxury 3-bedroomed Visit England 4 star Wessex built lodge cabin called Otter’s Holt. All with Wi-Fi access! Our properties are surrounded by 2 acres of gardens and paddock with a large (secure) duck pond.

Our Guests' Reviews
We had a fantastic stay in Badgers. Lovely rooms, good facilities, a most welcoming cake, tea, egg & milk on arrival. Excellent situation for traveling for walks, houses and sites. Sherborne Castle grounds are a must! Hunters Moon (next door) served excellent food for “meatatarians” & vegetarians – try the steak and ale mushroom & suet pudding good beer and cider too.
Thank you very much – our poodles loved it.
Lovely place and convenient location for lots of places to visit. Attention to detail is great including the cake and eggs. Thank You!
Spacious, airy lovely ‘home’. Every English bird you could want to see (p.s. bring binoculars next time!) Lots of info in the recreation room – a good short break!!
Even better the second time around – felt like home away from home! Loved seeing all the wildlife and I want to steal the rabbits they are so cute.
The ultimate holiday home, we will be back many many more times
